Why choose Leeds as a Stag Party destination?
Leeds has been a prime stag party destination, dating way back to the 1800’s when Michael Marks was tottering about Kirkgate Market in search of the local health club to blow off some steam on his stag do. As fate had it, however, he was to come across the eligible bachelor Tom Spencer instead.
‘Health Club?’ Spencer quizzed before beginning to explain the range of extreme stag party activities in Leeds: mini-tank driving, quad biking, karting, hovercrafts, dodgeball, paintball and more. It was too much for Marks to resist and before they knew it, they were blasting their way through some pesky clays and navigating the city on a beer wench booze cruise…
They left their Marks on Leeds with a stag do of industrial proportions, and they even opened up shop in Kirkgate to help fund their Leeds stag party endeavours. It was out of this historical Leeds stag weekend that ‘Marks and Spencers’ was born… solid evidence that Leeds stag parties forge bromances for the history books.
Leeds be honest, it takes a pretty wise best man to choose this stag party destination. What’s not to like… the absolutely buzzing nightclubs, the party-crazy student population and the locals, who are as keen for a tipple as any that you will meet on your stag party travels.
When Leeds is the best UK shopping destination, you can even pick up the bride-to-be some compensation for eating into the wedding fund with a disproportionate amount of alcohol. As Mark and Spencer knew all too well, if you want to please the ladies, there’s no better way to do it than to pick up some trinkets along the way.
Once your wedding duties are filled, bounce on down to Call Lane to mingle with the students at the live music venues and have your tweed blazer ready to infiltrate Millennium row with the cosmopolitan types touting martinis and cigars. Try and navigate the cobbled streets of Briggate after a day on the beer, when these auld’ traditional pubs entice Leeds stag parties for their authentic ale and other brews, it’ll be well worth the cobble hobble on the stag do.
